Fall is here, which means it’s time to shake out your flannel shirts and pour yourself a nice dark beer. Now you have a new brew to add to your rotation: Dunkin’ (the coffee-and-donuts purveyor formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts) has partnered with Boston’s Harpoon Brewery to create the Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter, and it’s available through the fall in 12 ounce bottles and on draft at select watering holes in the Eastern US.
According to a press release, the beer was brewed with Dunkin’s Espresso Blend coffee. It’s a smooth, malty beer with notes of espresso and dark chocolate, and at 6% ABV, likely a little stronger than the summer strength brews you’ve been sipping at the beach.
In other words, it’s a hearty, roasty beer that’s perfect for chillier temps and cozier occasions. According to Dan Kenary, CEO and Co-Founder of Harpoon Brewery, Dunkin’ has always been an essential part of the day-to-day operations of the brewery.
“Dunkin’ has been there for us since the early days when getting the brewery up and running required a lot of beer, and even more coffee,” he said. “We couldn’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the company that’s helped fuel our success.” Check Harpoon’s beer finder to locate a six pack near you.
